Is there a reason...

Post by smantie »

...why your website redirects to a virus?

Hi,

This may be an inappropriate place to post this - I'm not sure.

When I clicked your activation link to activate my account it redirected me to a website which caused my detect an HTML/FakeAV Trojan. Is there a possibility your boards might have been compromised by a virus, which can occor on PHPbb2 forums??

Anyways I thought staff here ought to be aware of this and hopefully if it is a problem others have experienced you can fixed it. Cheers and thanks for keeping UT99 alive.

smantie, you got a Fake-AniVirus program installed on your computer, which will detect viruses which doesnt exist...but to "remove" these non-existing viruses from your computer, you have to pay. ;)
Just try to deinstall this Fake-AntiVirus program.
